Rocket Man - Effingham Performance Center - Effingham, IL

About The Rocket Man Show

Simply put - this is Elton! 

Scotsman Rus Anderson is Elton John's official body double for his 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' world tour launch promo video.

Hand picked by Elton John & David Furnish, it was Rus' own live tribute production 'The Rocket Man Show' which got him noticed.
In the show, Rus recreates the magic & live persona of a young Elton like no other. Storming around the stage with a fun-loving sense of flamboyance; part diva, part soccer player, killer vocalist, fierce piano player, all rock & roller.
Rus' painstaking attention to detail includes wearing gorgeous, colorful & spectacular costumes (many actually worn by Elton) including his iconic boots, glasses & jumpsuits from 1973, as well as a sparkly Swarovski tuxedo from 1984.

It is clearly the most authentic Elton John tribute show in the world.

The Rocket Man Show is a regular feature across the USA at venues such as House of Blues, Hard Rock Live, Caesar's, Harrah's, Legends In Concert, BB King's, Universal Studios & Walt Disney World. You cannot go wrong with this much experience onstage at your venue.

Rus & his full band of merry crackerjack musicians are the very best in the business. The show is 100% live in both vocals & instrumentation. Absolutely no tracks or lip-syncing. The performance itself is an extremely sincere, intense & visual spectacle of a journey. There are ballads & driving rock songs. Audiences laugh, cry, sing & dance as they recall the highs & lows of Elton's epic career.

In summary, the key to success when hiring a band - or even buying a ticket to go & see a band - is knowing how professional they'll look, act & perform when they arrive.

Rus Anderson has been officially hired by Elton John himself to re-enact the most memorable moments of his career. How's that for peace of mind?


With hundreds & hundreds of shows & satisfied clients, thousands upon thousands of dollars in costumes & a 5-star rating on many of the USA's elite talent rating platforms, Rus is an ASCAP member, Disney verified & fully licensed & insured.

You are OK with Rus, Elton John thinks so too!
What you see is what you get & that's entertainment.

See you at the show.
